car radio

Has anyone had any issues with car radios affecting their pacemakers. I just recently got mine and it seems when i drive with the radio on i feel a little quizzy. Didnt know if i was just over thinking this or if it could really be an issue. Thanks

I think it's safe to say everyone here has a radio in their car so it would be big news if it affected us. Large magnets closer than 6" from your device are the only thing you need to worry about. Anything else will not have any effect.

Does it happen when you are driving on bumpy roads? If you pace with rate response, the pacer can mistake the motion of the car for working out and raise your rate. Harmless but it feels weird if you aren't expecting it. Settings can be fine tuned so that it's less noticeable if that's what it is. 

over thinking it

I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
